Cyberbotv2 commented on Satoru Iwata Defends Timing of DeNA Deal, Teas...:

@Yorumi: Oh yeah, the Wii was my last day one Nintendo purchase. I waited a year on the Wii U because I could see trouble early, especially with the looming PS4 and Xbox One. And I have little confidence I'll be purchasing any Nintendo console moving forward. I'll ride it out with the Wii U, since I put money into it already. Fool me once, fool me twice..goodbye.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Satoru Iwata Defends Timing of DeNA Deal, Teas...:

@Yorumi: As a customer, I just feel Iwata and Nintendo has been lying for the last few years. I wonder what else they have under wraps? And Iwata needs to be quiet. The more he talks, the more he damages the Nintendo brand. Why would you mention a new Club Nintendo is arriving in the fall? Now, everyone's just waiting the rest of the year. What they need to do is focus on the Wii U, and 3DS, and show something for these systems. Get back to the games, because anything else they talk about ends up being a gimmick or straight up false.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH : The incentive was club Nintendo. Iwata expects a release schedule around the fall for that. Right now PS Plus and Xbox Live offer free games as their incentive for buying the console essentially. Nintendo had the digital deluxe and Club Nintendo. Now they have nothing. So, as a Wii U owner, I have no reason to buy any games again until the fall. Are they going to reward me retroactively for hundreds of dollars of purchases through the late Spring and Summer? I highly doubt it.

@Quorthon : Nintendo admitting to the development of a new platform has essentially sealed the deal on the Wii U. As each day goes by, they lose more on the Wii U. What incentive does any honest Wii U owner have to purchase a game on a dying console? And to add to the problem, by ceasing any further reward system until the fall, they have set the console up for failure. WhAt are they doing?

@CanisWolfred : I read that article and see the same line being traced in the sand here. How are they all into innovating with the NX, and yet done nothing with the Wii U controller. You can't innovate for innovation sake. You actually have to do something. And for anyone saying Microsoft and Sony don't innovate, look at their OS, look at how they've essentially made a set top box that is tthe Swiss army knife of consoles. Look at the Xbox controller, and realize that was the natural extension of the N64 controller, and so on. Its time for Iwata to roll out...

Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

My last comment deleted. But, what I previously posted was that I don't really trust Nintendo anymore. They've been working on this DeNA relationship for 5 years, yet what have they done for Wii U? I feel as if they hoodwinked me into putting all this money into my Wii U. Loss of 3rd parties, loss of VC, zero advertising and a sparse release schedule makes me totally question what's going on. And I have no incentive to buy anything anymore Because of no rewards program. And that doesn't begin until the fall! That's ridiculous. And with the NX, I honestly don't care. I'll whip out my N64, and gamecube for the time being, and finish up my Steam backlog before I think about purchasing another Nintendo console.

Good editorial. But here's the problem now. I have no interest in buying any game right now. The new membership program may reward customers for purchases. But it's not going to reward me for now. And the other issue is that Nintendo wants to essentially be Apple. Not a bad idea, but probably too little too late.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Right to Take Its Ti...:

@Prof-Whit : Absolutely. I believe in paying for good work. Why should the indie developers be selling at a low cost, if its a quality game? Why should the VC be offering games at bargain bin prices? I downloaded Axelay the other day. That game should be 20 dollars at the least. I've felt cell phone games, and services like PSN, and Xbox Live give out very cheap games or an associated service with free games, and this dilutes what the customer expects. Steam keeps it real. They will offer great discounts but have you sign a waiver that the game could vanish tomorrow. So you pay for what you get.

@alLabouTandroiD: hahahahahahahahahaha! I haven't laughed like that in awhile. People already complain about VC games running 7.99, or VC indie games running at 20 bucks. I can't imagine rare games running at 100 dollars. But back on topic, with the eshop, I found the interface pretty good, and as organized as can be. They need more push notifications for indie games. Steam has the best layout, and I don't mind signing over my" rights" to a game. To be able to play on any pc, whenever I want, and usually at a ridiculous discount...yeah, I'll sign over whatever. The PSN store is probably the worst, specifically on the PS3, with buggy layout, and slow loading. Where Nintendo rocks is increased storage. Buying a 2TB external drive and plugging it was as easy as it gets. Just like my pc.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Satoru Iwata Shares Confidence in Hitting Targ...:

@Quorthon : the gamecube was a wonderful console, where I thought Nintendo was finally branching out a little. I recall the huge turning point was Zelda Wind Waker. The game was great, but a lot of those kids that had played Zelda as a child wanted to see that next iteration which was an adult Link, something akin to The Witcher, or Elder Scrolls. Instead I felt gamers looked at what Nintendo was doing and slowly walked away. They tried to go more realistic with Zelda on Wii, but they were already too late. Most Sony and Microsoft console owners were probably big on the N64 and early gamecube but became dissatisfied with the direction. I used to jam to WWF No Mercy, Goldeneye, All Star Baseball on N64 and with gamecube I had timesplitters, NBA Courtside, RE, etc. The Wii U has zero variety when compared to those days. Right now, I'm waiting for a good bundle on PS4 and I'll swoop in on that. I miss my sports games( I recently tried out Super Mega Baseball...woah), horror, rpg and so much more.

@Quorthon : Nintendo does not have a library of...is exactly what I'm thinking. The gamecube inspired me with Resident Evil remake, 0, and 4. With the Wii U, we've had RE Revelations and Zombi U. I look over the pond and see horror games left and right on competing consoles and PC. What can Nintendo themselves do to rectify that? Release Eternal Darkness HD, make a deal with Capcom to get RE games and their horror library on Nintendo consoles, or do nothing? They've elected to do the latter, and this applies to every genre it seems.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Satoru Iwata Shares Confidence in Hitting Targ...:

@OorWullie : I agree. My question is always, why is this taking so long? Iwata for me has begun to represent regression. He recently mentioned that the Wii U has more games coming. I suppose he means more platformers, or more Nintendo mascot themed games, or more Amiibo. Unfortunately, none of that interests me anymore.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Reaction: Super Smash Bros. amiibo Support Sho...:

@JLPick : Spot on. I started feeling like a fool late last year after I picked up SSB. The game is good but nothing different was really in there. The Amiibo Is nonsense. There are still no account based systems. Nintendo, for me has gone off the deep end. Look at the PS4 and Xbox one, and upcoming PC schedules. The Wii U has nothing I want coming up. Too many platforming games, a mishandled VC, too much riding on Splatoon and Zelda, and Xenoblade. I'm hesitant to purchase anything Nintendo related moving forward.

This article just confirms what I've been suspecting for awhile, Nintendo is 100 percent cooked. They seriously expect people to buy a new 3DS? Because of a cloud based account system, a jam packed VC, oh wait, they don't have that. It's a shame the blindly loyal will probably buy this and keep singing their praises. Unfortunately, the time for a reality check for Nintendo and it's fans may be long past.

@ACK : I'm not too sure what Nintendo is doing anymore. I was reading the ps now service is dropping 5 games weekly for that service. Meanwhile, Nintendo gives you a morsel from the back catalog whenever they wish, and it's become tiring. Tiring enough to the point I have zero interest in their next console. I'm sure a lot of Wii U owners are feeling the same way.

Iwata was sick. This is another ho hum financial meeting, not meant for the hardcore Nintendo fans who end up speculating again. on that day, I'll be reading first impressions on Bloodborne, and see if a PS4 is worth my money. If Nintendo had a consistent stream of games, I doubt anyone would care about these meetings.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

@MagusDiablo : That's an intelligent take. How many games and consoles actually are being sold because of YouTube. Not too many I gather. It's probably a hardcore Nintendo fan who's already decided if they are going to purchase the game or not. It might even detract someone from buying the game. How much did it help Bayonetta? I bet Nintendo just doesn't want future customers seeing men in ski hats and beards, or dudes that are stuck to their couch playing their games. It might not be the vibe they want to put out there.

That's a very nice job. Sometimes fans of certain series do some amazing things. The Grand theft Auto and NBA 2K series mods on pc are amazing, and all due to some extremely dedicated fans. I don't expect to ever see a RE 2 remake on a Nintendo console, or for that matter any Resident Evil game. Maybe for the other consoles and PC.

I bought Citizens of Earth. Game looks awesome. I'll get Punch Out and SCAT later this weekend. I initially balked at these Wii games popping up on the eshop, but they're putting out good stuff! I would love to see some third party Wii games show up, namely Resident Evil, and WWE All Stars. Is that even possible?

I'm glad the article mentioned that the amiibo concept can be looked at as a glorified collector's toy. For me, it has yet to serve any significant purpose, that you couldn't get form regular DLC or a holographic card (which I feel would be collectable, especially to the nostalgic). I'm sure Nintendo has a master plan that connects the amiibo, the Wii U, 3DS, and QOL, but as of right now, they have a skeptical customer here.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Wii U Enjoyed Its Best Ever Month of US Sales ...:

It looks as if Nintendo may drop the price and remove Wii BC compatibility as evidenced by their introduction of Wii digital games. What has caught my attention is the amount of amiibo sold. The suckers that bought these things will come to find them poor long term investments. I'm sure many consumers are looking at that permanent Xbox one price drop to 350 U.S. dollars, and Sony's likely response. I know I am.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Nintendo wants people to purchase these games again, with no gamepad support, and no step up with the visuals? Sure....This is sad man. Meanwhile, GameCube is still missing. Only the deluded Nintendo die hards will be purchasing, unless they don't own it. In trying to impress their current Wii U owners, they received my contempt.

@akaDv8R: C'mon dude, you can't actually believe what you posted. Quorthon is totally spot on with his posts. I stopped drinking the Nintendo Kool-Aid a few months ago, and saw what I was missing out on. The company is full of it, with tons of empty promises to the most loyal of console owners. That eventually negatively impacts perception and sales at some point. They could release a PS4 or Xbox one type console tomorrow and I'm confident nobody would care. They have managed to damage the brand to the point of no return.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Digital Foundry Ponders Next-Gen Hardware Opti...:

How does a Wii U owner possibly have any confidence in the next console? If this is their last big year of releases, it's a bad sign for the current user base and anyone on the fence. I'm definitely picking up a PS4 at the end of the year because they have great 3rd party support. I miss my sports games. I miss Resident Evil. I miss Batman. Seriously, once Arkham Knight arrives, it's game over with Nintendo and me.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

@Quorthon : "Yes, Sony and MS, and companies like Square-Enix (especially Square-Enix) also feature their repeats and remakes, but they are not solely dependent on them as Nintendo is"
Yes, Nintendo does rely on heavily on their franchise characters. There are some differences. Like Hyrule Warriors. That reliance on these characters is actually what may be most detrimental. Splatoon was expected to be Mario based initially, and i can say without a doubt I would not be looking at the game at all if there were more Nintendo characters representing another genre. We already have Smash and Kart.
Otherwise, the games I look forward to most seem to be Devils Third, Affordable space adventures, and Splatoon. But the PS4 and Xbox One are going to have some very good games as well. I'm not sure if my money will be with Nintendo this year.

@Quorthon : I was about to argue with you about the benefits of ps plus, but you made some very valid points. I may be looking at this situation with Nintendo glasses. It looks as if they have the money to have a service like Xbox live, and PS plus. I think you just sold me on getting a PS4 or Xbox One. It sounds as if they really cater to the gamer. Hmmmm....

Hahaha, some of these comments are ridiculous. Right now, Nintendo just got back into the positive with their finances. They are just looking to build from here. A PS plus like subscription does not work for a smaller company like Nintendo. Sony and Microsoft can afford to hand out games for free because they are mega corporations. Just enjoy the Wii U folks.
